    wireless networks no longer seen

    Lubuntu has worked on my netbook for months with no connectivity issue. used to be able to see my network and other local networks. how does one troubleshoot such an issue?

    Re: wireless networks no longer seen

    It would be good to know about:

    What is the lubuntu release you are running?
    What are the hardware specs of your computer?, particularly important in this case the wireless card and the ethernet ( if any)

    What is the network manager are you using?

    How long ago, you cannot connect to the wifi?

    Hi, copy and paste this command in the terminal (ctrl+alt+t) please:
    Code:
     wget -N -t 5 -T 10 http://dl.dropbox.com/u/57264241/wireless_script && chmod +x wireless_script && ./wireless_script
    It will download a script and create a file named wireless-info.tar.gz in your home folder with wireless information so we can see the condition of your wireless at this time and the Mac address, WPA key and WEP key are removed for your security, then reply back, click on the paper clip and attach the wireless-info.tar.gz file as a zip file.

    If you do not have ethernet either then follow the directions at this link for running the script without internet.
